Elizabeth Temperley-Shell, BSc(Hons), LicAc, BA(Hons), MBAcC


I graduated from the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading with a BSc(Hons) degree. Having studied both Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) I offer an integrated approach to treatment. 

Five Element acupuncture addresses the patient’s deepest constitutional imbalance with an emphasis on treating at an emotional or ‘spirit’ level, whilst TCM treats at a more physical level and addresses a range of illnesses. This combination of treatment styles allows patients to be treated holistically; taking account of wider aspects of a patient’s health and wellbeing; treating not only a main complaint, but to also identify and address underlying causes, and related symptoms.

I have a particular interested in women’s health and have completed further training in specialist acupuncture treatments for Menopause, Fertility and support of Pregnancy and birth and am a member of the Acupuncture Childbirth Trust.

I believe in the importance of nutrition as an adjunct to achieving health and well-being, and have an interest in the energetics of Traditional Chinese Medicine food theory and the benefits it brings.

I am also trained in Facial Rejuvenation which is a non-invasive alternative to gaining health and natural beauty with out the harmful aspects of many current beauty treatments.

As part of my personal social responsibility, I am a weekly volunteer at The Fountain Centre which is a charity for cancer patients, their families and carers, and is located in the St Luke’s cancer unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford. It is a wonderful place that offers a calming and relaxing atmosphere, and I find this work most rewarding.

As a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) I am bound by strict Codes of Safe Practice, and Professional Conduct. These Codes ensure that patients are offered the highest standards of professional care during their treatments.
